The undecomposed or partly decomposed layer of organic matter situated above the soil surface and the turfgrass shoots is called thatch layer. (Thatch zone)
Roots and rhizomes originating from the thatch layer and not the soil inhibits the turfgrass system’s inherent tolerance against biotic and abiotic stresses alike and increase the effect of residual herbicides in the soil which is not neutralized by microbial decomposition or cause residual herbicide injury to the turf.
Excessive thatch should be controlled by means of scarification and topdressing or as a combination between the two. Not only to remove the dead organic matter, but also to ensure a firm playing surface that is not spongy and result in athlete injury.
We own the specialized equipment to de-thatch and vacuum the built-up thatch layer to ensure healthy, stress free, firm and even playing surfaces that will set you a cut above the rest.
